Through fasting and prayer, Jesus set me free from OCD.

I had no plan to upload my testimony here because I can't express myself in English. However, I strongly felt that the Holy Spirit kept urging me to tell people here suffering from OCD how the Lord Jesus healed me. I wrote my first writing in English on the internet, for testimony is to express the glory of God, not myself. I prayed to God that you all sees God’s power and his love, not my own story while reading my testimony.

I had suffered from OCD for nearly 30 years, which means that I had never lived a normal life until God healed me several months ago. Checking, demanding reassurances and arranging items in a specific way had worn me out. I was the only irregular church goer, but God always sustained me, so that I was barely able to survive even though OCD had completely thwarted my passion and plans for life.

It took so long for me to recognize the fact that I was an Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder patient. I just imputed my struggle to my lack of self-control or a character flaw although sometimes I thought something was surely wrong with me. Despite repetitive failure, I was proud before God. Then, I never thought I needed God’s help in order to still the severe storm inside me. It was only after I found the fact that an sufferer cannot defeat OCD at all that I became desperate and humble, and surrendered to the LORD. I read the testimonies that through fasting and prayer, the Holy Spirit completely healed so many terminal patients. So I was sure that my creator, God would also set me free if I tried it. I started my first fasting at prayer centre, where service was held 5 times a day everyday, but I got skeptical on the first day of fasting because I was too weak to pray. I thought only fasting was nothing without prayer and petition so that I decided to quit. Till then, I had never heard God’s voice and regarded that kind of experience as something supernatural for only a few special and spiritual people. But I was wrong. ‘God tells the poor in heart who is desperate and humble.’ I heard the voice of God in my chest soon after I gave up fasting. ‘You do not believe me about this!’ The voice inside me, but it was not my voice. I had never heard auditory hallucinations nor another voice from my heart. Except OCD, I was the kind of person who was rational and cool-headed. I was amazed and asked “Is it God?”, “I don’t believe you about this? Are you saying about fasting?”. Then, God assured me three times in different ways that I had to fast and pray and I resumed fasting and prayer. On the third day, I vomited violently over and over again so that I could not attend services at all and I was afraid if I would end up in the hospital, but, I did not give up for it was God’s will. I repented for pride and foolishness. And I couldn’t help but confess that I was the one who crucified Jesus and mocked him, neither the chief priests nor the Roman soldiers. During the break between services, I flicked open the Bible with inattention and Mark5:34 came into sight. “Your faith has healed you. Go in peace and be freed from your suffering.” Right at that moment, I realized that the Lord Jesus completely healed me so that my lifelong suffering was over at last. Early childhood onset, long history, no social life, ……. There was no hope, but God had mercy on me just like he led Israel out of bondage of Egypt. Hallelujah! I didn’t know what it means exactly whenever Christians cried "Hallelujah!". But now I also can shout “Hallelujah! My God is the only true God and Jesus Christ is my LORD!” with all my heart.

My dear brothers and sisters, please take note of this:

Jesus wants to heal you. That's why he was cruicified.

"the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are healed.(Isaiah 53:5b) "

Jesus wants to set you free. That's why he came to this world.

" He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to release the oppressed, (Luke 4:18b)"

"Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free. (John 8:32)"

'Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know. (Jeremiah 33:3) '

Thank you for sharing your testimony. Lately OCD has been spiking more, but it's to be expected with added stress. I am still hopeful for complete healing.

Thank you so much for your post, fwchsn2! This is fascinating! In what three ways did God show you that you had to pray and fast? How did you fast, and for how long? Did you eat in the evening, or did you stop eating completely for the duration of the fast?

does anyone know where in the bible it says the verse
"God tells the poor in heart who is desperate and humble."?

the reason i ask is cause i believe god spoke to me through the bible in the times when i was completely desperate and humble. at the worst time in my life, i took the bible in my hands, and i prayed to god. i asked what he thought of all my suffering. i told him i saw no way out but suicide because the suffering is unbearable and lasted way too long. i asked if he wanted me to kill myself because i did not feel him in my life. i wanted to know what he thought of my condition. and after praying that with all that was in me in complete desperation, i opened the bible to a random page, and pointed my finger at a completely random verse without reading anything, and that verse read: "because of the devastation of the afflicted, because of the groaning of the needy, now I will arise," says the Lord, "I will set him in the safety for which he longs." psalm 12:5 NASB. it was about a week later that i had a giant improvement in my health.

since then i had more hard times with my ongoing severe health problems, and in those times i would come to god in faith and ask him to speak to me through the bible, and i would open the bible to random page and point my finger and read that verse. i've done that many times now, but i only do it when im completely desperate, and each time i did it, the verses that my finger pointed at, all talked about healing of the body.

in addition to those, my mom heard a voice inside of her similar to what the original poster mentions. she has heard it 2 times before in her life, but the 3rd time it happened when she was praying and crying about me. she asked god to heal me, and asked him to answer our prayers about my healing. just as she was asking god to answer our prayers, she heard a voice inside of her say "and i already answered." it was not her voice, and my mom is a very mentally healthy person with no history of any mental problems. after she heard that voice, my slow healing process started, and then i had a big improvement following my bible-opening incident that i described. my mom heard the voice again a few months later. me and my mom made a plan to have a "feast" if and when i'm completely healed. we would invite our friends who prayed for me and knew of my struggle, and we would celebrate god healing me, and i would pray a prayer of whole-hearted thanks giving at the table. one day my mom saw me grasping my head in agony, and the site made her lose faith, and she thought to herself in despair, "there won't be a feast." she did not even finish thinking that thought when she heard a voice inside of her say, "there WILL be a feast!" it was not her voice or thought, it was a voice inside of her. since then i've improved greatly, but im still in a the valley of the shadow of death (i have many health problems, not just OCD).

god basically told my mother and me that i will be healed by him. when and how it will happen i do not know.

my OCD constantly makes me doubt that god even exists, so its almost impossible for me to have faith in god. i have short moments where i believe and i feel such great peace and love from him, but the OCD steals it away very quickly.

i know i must have a major spiritual change in order for the miracle of healing to take place. i know i must totally submit to god, but i just cant do it because of my doubt. i dunno how to do it and im stuck without a miracle!!

i dunno what to do, how do i get that spiritual change that the original poster experienced? it seems impossible cause i can't fight the doubts about god's existence that the OCD constantly feeds me.

Thank you Kay! Just really overwhelmed

Single mother 3 boys (16, twins 7)

Live in a small town, moved here from L.A. and still feel like I can't 'fit it'.

Went from 208 to 260lbs in the last 10 years. Lost 27 pounds at one point just to get depressed and gain it all back plus more.

Work in an office with 15 women. Have watch the one who don't like me turn the others against me. Constant being taunted with indirect insults that I can't prove but I just have to bare. Being at work feels like emotional torment. Can't trust anybody. I've been off from work so much I'm afraid I'll get fired but being in that atmosphere is torture. No ones saved only cares about drinking and bragging about what they got. I'm embarrassed because I am a good worker but I've allowed to get under my skin so much that whatever lies they've been talking about me appear true cause my desk area is backlogged and out of control. That is all for now...

Great testimony, thank you for sharing it with us.

God can move very powerfully with prayer + fasting

I had suffered from OCD for nearly 30 years, which means that I had never lived a normal life until God healed me several months ago. Checking, demanding reassurances and arranging items in a specific way had worn me out. I was the only irregular church goer, but God always sustained me, so that I was barely able to survive even though OCD had completely thwarted my passion and plans for life.

It took so long for me to recognize the fact that I was an Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder patient. I just imputed my struggle to my lack of self-control or a character flaw although sometimes I thought something was surely wrong with me. Despite repetitive failure, I was proud before God. Then, I never thought I needed God’s help in order to still the severe storm inside me. It was only after I found the fact that an sufferer cannot defeat OCD at all that I became desperate and humble, and surrendered to the LORD. I read the testimonies that through fasting and prayer, the Holy Spirit completely healed so many terminal patients. So I was sure that my creator, God would also set me free if I tried it. I started my first fasting at prayer centre, where service was held 5 times a day everyday, but I got skeptical on the first day of fasting because I was too weak to pray. I thought only fasting was nothing without prayer and petition so that I decided to quit. Till then, I had never heard God’s voice and regarded that kind of experience as something supernatural for only a few special and spiritual people. But I was wrong. ‘God tells the poor in heart who is desperate and humble.’ I heard the voice of God in my chest soon after I gave up fasting. ‘You do not believe me about this!’ The voice inside me, but it was not my voice. I had never heard auditory hallucinations nor another voice from my heart. Except OCD, I was the kind of person who was rational and cool-headed. I was amazed and asked “Is it God?”, “I don’t believe you about this? Are you saying about fasting?”. Then, God assured me three times in different ways that I had to fast and pray and I resumed fasting and prayer. On the third day, I vomited violently over and over again so that I could not attend services at all and I was afraid if I would end up in the hospital, but, I did not give up for it was God’s will. I repented for pride and foolishness. And I couldn’t help but confess that I was the one who crucified Jesus and mocked him, neither the chief priests nor the Roman soldiers. During the break between services, I flicked open the Bible with inattention and Mark5:34 came into sight. “Your faith has healed you. Go in peace and be freed from your suffering.” Right at that moment, I realized that the Lord Jesus completely healed me so that my lifelong suffering was over at last. Early childhood onset, long history, no social life, ……. There was no hope, but God had mercy on me just like he led Israel out of bondage of Egypt. Hallelujah! I didn’t know what it means exactly whenever Christians cried "Hallelujah!". But now I also can shout “Hallelujah! My God is the only true God and Jesus Christ is my LORD!” with all my heart.

My dear brothers and sisters, please take note of this:

Jesus wants to heal you. That's why he was cruicified.

"the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are healed.(Isaiah 53:5b) "

Jesus wants to set you free. That's why he came to this world.

" He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to release the oppressed, (Luke 4:18b)"

"Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free. (John 8:32)"

'Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know. (Jeremiah 33:3) '
